THE BOTTOM LINE OF UK BUS PRIVATIZATION

More than 10 years after the deregulation of bus services in Britain, a comprehensive report discloses that bus ridership in London, England, increased by 8% from 1986 to 1996. This is compared with an average decline of patronage in the range of 31% across the rest of the country. The passenger increase has occurred in London notwithstanding a 78% decline in bus operating subsidies over the same period.
